I don't think it'll change much, at least not right away. Right now as a student I'm hesitant to use legal assistants much. This is mostly due to imposter syndrome (I've been out of law school for less than a year, who am I to boss around someone who's been at the firm for 15 years?)
I expect that as I get more comfortable (and as my hourly rate goes up) I'll rely on assistants more often to handle administrative tasks so I can focus on billables.
Thank you so much for your thoughts! I really appreciate your perspective and the honest input.
I did end up letting my offer from TRU expire and will be going ahead and accepting the offer from UVIC. Thank you all again for your replies
